The burn-in time of PEGASUS DACs is one week: Standby or Powered on 24/7 (300 hours), you will get the best performance after the enough aging hours.
Connecting RCA or XLR output simultaneously is not recommended, it will degrade the sound quality because they are shared. Even if the downstream equipment is on/off, the output signal will still be transmitted to the input stage of the downstream device.
If possible, please use the XLR output. As a ture balanced DAC, the XLR output of PEGASUS will be more superior.
i2s Pin Configuration
i2s has no industry standard. Customer who choose the use i2s has to configure the pinout correctly to get the right sound. A good way to check the sound correctness is to compare the output of SPDIF and i2s of the same transport.
Most of the SACD players' SPDIF output converts the native DSD to PCM. The PCM can be decoded by the MUSICIAN PEGASUS.
The HDMI i2s of the higher-end MUSICIAN DAC is not a typical multimedia HDMI port. It's a IIS (i2s) protocol, meant to be used with specific source like Jay's Audio CDT2-MK2, Soundaware D300/REF streamer, Pink Faun i2s bridge, PSAudio Memory Player etc. Moreover, IIS doesn't have industry standard, MUSICIAN DAC featured with IIS pinout configuration so that to make the DAC versatile to match with various IIS source devices. But we can't possibly test all the IIS devices available in the market, hence, we cannot guarantee IIS compatibility with the untested devices.
